After three long years of waiting, Nintendo has finatly released 
their 16 bit Super Farnicom. With ali the rumours flying around 
that this would be the cortaote to end all consoles, Robert Swan 
took a good, hard look at what could really be the future of com- 
puter entertainment...

the vast price tag is Ihe lact that

EXPRESS 
EXTRAS 

Jtist like the Lynx and ihe Gamebay. 
!he Turbg Expre^ has the ability to 
link up With anolhm machine, THo 
Q>mLinN, as Wb known, enables two 
Turbo Express ownars h> hnh up artd 
enjoy simultaneous lw& playar games. 

There's ateo an optional TV lunar 
that can be iUached to ihe Turto Ex- 
pr#sE to rr^ake it into a fully portab)^ 
COtour teleiriSKon - if you ttve m the US 
The Am tf lean tun^r is especiatty da- 
ergned to wofli only with Amencan

EXPRESS YOURSELF 

There's a new handheld in town - a cooli mean stranger called the 
Turbo Express, and this little baby could well be the one to clean 

up in the handheld war - blowing away both the Lynx and Game 
Gear. Why? Well, mention the fact that the Turbo Express is com- 
pletely compatible with the vast range of PC Engine cards avail- 
able, and you've got to admit that it's afready got a head start... 



TURBO 
POWER 



Tha Turbo Express is basically an 
American PC Engird (the Turtso Grafx 
161 ifljwMied into a ca« roughly 
leOmm K lOOmm k 45mm. There's a 
three4r>ch cototir LCD screen nrHHintod 
ai the io|k of the case, and a speaker 
and a stereo headphone jack btiifl in to 
QEve the playef the fyli benefit or its sm 
channel sound ctiip 

Inside the Tutb^ Express is a cys- 
l0m^sefl 6502 processor running at 
7MH2 (that s abmjt seven limes faster 
than the Commodore 64 GS games 
consoieK backed up by irnpresstve cus- 
lorn graphics chips. Anyone who has 
seen an ordinary PC Engine in ad ion 
will know that Ih^s combination of mm- 
pu^Ling hafdware is capable of great 
things 

TURBOVISION 

One of ifia most important features of 
any porlable console must be the 
screen The Turtso Express' display 
measures just ovet three inches 
across, but since all of ihe games it 
runs were designed for us^a on a nof - 
mal TV Of mno^nrt^, there is a strong 
danger ihai sprries srK) te^t would be 
tndtstinct on such a tiny screen We 
tested out the machine wtih Dungeon 
Explorer and the results wefen'l veqf 
Empressive. 

Aj [hough teici mn be read wtlfi el- 
fori, if y04j are going to be using ihe 
Turbo E Impress lor any length oi time. 
it i more tha^i \lk0f that youll soon be 
sutfering from severa eye strain. The 
screen also has an annoyrng tendency 
fo blur at ihe most inopportune times 
and the effects are defmileiy fati in 
scr oiling games such as Tennis. 

TURBO 
COMPATIBILITY 

The version of the coitsote we tested 
was the American Turbo E^^press 
model, and jv&t Itke ihe US Turbo 
GrafK 16, the system is completely in* 
compilibfe with ihe Japanese PC En> 
gine system. Howevar, a Japanese 
version of the console (which is com- 
patible with imported Engine gear) is 
goir>g lo be relaased very $oon in 
Japan, and it will be ihis version thai 
the importers wiEl brmg into the country

EXPRESS 
RELEASE? 

NEC have postponed all ptans io re- 
lease the PC Engine and it's retated 
hardware in Europe, at feast for the 
fotafeeabli fulur^. but Ays E nan firm, 
Digital Entettainment, have signed up 
Ihe nghls lo market Turt>d Grebe gear 
in Europe, including Ihe Turbo Ex- 
press The equipment ihey plan lo re- 
(ease rs co^vefied US systems so 
don t expect to a Me to run imported 
Japar>ese gear on it, Digital Entertain- 
mant eMpect lo release (he TurtMH Ex- 
press by the fifst Quarler of n#il year 

TURBO 
CHARGE 

In the USA, NEC Bm seiing 1 
Express for $249, but il an imported 
model makes it to our stio^es, expect 
to pay well over three iiundf ed so vs. 
When you can get a techmcaHy supe- 
riof {and otficial) Aiar i Lynx in Dixons 
for C130 Ihe Turbo Cipre^s seems sig- 
nificantly Over -priced 

THE VERDICT 

Unfortunately, !fie NEC Turbo Express 
isn'l quite the handheld mirade we 
wafe hoping for. mainly because of the 
rather awkward screen, Also, if you 
though ihat the battery tife of the Atari 
Lyn>i: w^s a bit of a downer, ypu'll find 
that the Turbo Express is no better. Sm 
AA Size batteries are r>eeded to power 
Ihe beast, and they onty last tor Ihree 
hours, maximum. 

The massive range o1 software 
avajlable rmw makes the Turbo Ex- 
press rnitially very alluring. However, 
at this prtce. you'd tie far better off 
buying a spanking new Megad rrva ior 
use at home, and keep the left over 
change for a nice Gamaboy tor your 
portable gaming enpyment.

THE SALIS CURVE 
LONDON SWII 3sy 








Ah! Christmas comes but once a year- and it*s 
just as well too. In spite of all this Christmas 
cheer, you'll be glad to know that I'm still the 
same unhelpful, msulting, and yet lovable YOB 
as I am during the rest of the year. So, without 
any more ado, let's be off on our marvellous Val 
Doonican-type Yuletide Mailbag Extravaganza! 



MUSICAL

Dear YOB. 

H^i\o my hard friend, how

9- Terra Cresta in gan*e 
music. 

lOC^b^moid 

I wQutd also like to say. while 
the Maniacs of Noise are the 
besi musicians around at I he 
moment, no-one has ever 
been up to the standard of 
l^ob Hubbard and Martin Gal- 
way they tomW make the 
C€4 sound like nothing else 
and I wish they woyld come 
back. 

Someofye mth an awfut signa- 
ture, Som&whBf&. 
PS: Sorry atrout the handwrit- 
ing 

MC YOB: Those sound Hke 
a couple et vaMd hiNiats, 



but I still thknk Delta has 
the best CfMI muiic ever. 
Anyone else got a list of fa- 
vour it es for some of tier 
comptiTlers or con so leu? 
For example, does anyone 
remember the music on 
that ancient Spectrum bud- 
get game. Agent X? Now 
that was really something! 
And how about City Hunter 
on the PC Engine or Vermil- 
lion on the Megadnve? 
Reinbcw Arts' musician, 
Chris Huelsbeck. Is goodi 
and so is Matt Furnlii (who 
produced the tunes for Do- 
mark s Badlands and Spy 
Who Loved Me), but noth* 
ing gets me boogyin' belter 
than the mustc on Software 
Creations' stuff (written by 
Tim and Ian Follin I Ihtnk}. 
Atl this talk o1 music re- 
minds me 0t when people 
used to write In to mags 
saying Ihey turned down 



the game music and put on 
their own fave records 
while playing. Does anyone 
still do that or have com* 
puter music standards Im* 
proved so much that no- 
one feels the need to any 
more? Let's know, eh?

SOUND 
ADVICE 

Dear YOB. 

I've gut a Specif um +3. My 
Dad s 90I a PC with VGA 
mofiitcw The graphics may 
t>e hjsh but Ihe sound s cr^p 
so I'm go*nq to get a sound 
board Will you ie« ma the 
best one please? 
I don't know which game to 
get: esiher Off -Road Racer or 
Badlands Dn the PC Which 
do you think the best is? 
I m gelling a Game Gear lor 
Cl^rislmas, do you think H's 
worth getting or not? It looks 
kish. 

Neg Cob. Swansea. 
PS Wliai does YOB siand 
for. Of are you too afraid lo 
tell? PPS: I think you're lush. 
YOB^ Thif lisl PS leivti 
me a might concerned 
about your mental condl* 
tlon, but, though it t 
against my belter Judge* 
manl, I'll intwer your que^ 
Uont. 

1) A Roland sound card Is 
probably the best available 
lorlhe PC. bul also the 
most exptr^sive (the beat 
one coat* about EtOO!), so 
you d probabiy be best off 
with an AOLIB card, or bet* 
ter iUII, a Game Blatter, 
which Js ADLIB compallble 
and hii nymeiout other 



bita of BOund gubblns built 
In. 

2) I haven't played Bad* 
lands on the PC, but I have 
played Ofl^Roacf Racer, and 
though it t really neet, I 
find it a toil easy, Bul than I 
tup pose itiars fust m«

LETTER OF 
THE BEAST 2 

Dear VOB. 

Yep. you who thinks that he 
is 'ard with the stupid leather 
jacket 1 don t ihink it was 
right to blame you but will you

CRICKET, BY 
JIMINYI 

Dear YOB. 

Qdayi 

Ive gotta know two 

questions: 

i Why aron 1 there any 



Rugby League programs 
arotind Eg. TV Sports 
Rugby League (particularly 
on the Amiga) Might this be 
because the Aussies keep 
kicking ass, both in the past, 
present farxl the Tulure)? 
2 Could you please tell me if 
Ihere are any wor1hwhi!e 
cricket games? Talking of 
cricket, we re kicking ass in 
that too! 

Benn The Hitmaf^' Wateon, 
Moof^t^ank, Aiistratia (ob- 

vtOMfyh 

YOB: That's funny - \ didn't 
think you were allowed to 
kick asfl in cricket. If I'd 
known that I wouldn't have 
tkived oil so many PE les- 
sons al sctiool. Anyway, to 
answer your questions - 

1) How should I know why 
there aren't any Rugby 
League programs around? 
Its probably tor the same 
reason there aren't any car- 
pet bowls g^mes or rolling- 
peas-^along-the-grpLind- 
using-your-nose games, ie, 
there isn 1 much ol a de- 
mand (or one. 

2) The only worthwtitle 
cricket game around until 
recently was Audiogenic'! 
an e lent Ian Botha rn 'a Teat 
Match, and that was S btt 
only. However, Anco (of 
Kick Off lame) have an- 
nounced thai they re pro- 
ducing a cricket game 
called (and don l believe 
this it you don t want to) 
Bails Off, which will be out 
some time in '91«

PROBLEMS 
WITH GUYS 

Dear YOa 

I have recently purchased an 
Amiga A5O0 and also have 
the misfortune to know some- 
one called 'Guy Simms" who 
hat got a Megadrrve. Now, 
Guy happens to Ihi-nh that the 
Megadrtve has much beiler 
sound and graphie? than the 
Anniga The problerti ts, don't 
you Ihink eI is a bil unfair lo 
compare a highly briikant 
computer with a good con- 
sole'^ Even when the Amigd's 
graphics and sound are good 
enough? i agree that the 
Megadrive ts b^tt^r, but thai 
is because it ^ a "console*, 
and the Amiga is a *conii* 
pute^^ Ptease. please. 
piMae, ple«#, could you, tor 
Guy's sake, ma*e this cJear 
(Anyway, I think your mag's 
great!) 

Muhmud Ahmad, Ttxmiion 
Heath, Surrey. 

AUNTIE YOB: Remember. 
Muhmud. Ihere'e nothing 
dirty or shameful about 
owning an Amiga these 
days, and It's t^st some- 
thing that a certain percent- 
age ol the population feel 
drawn to^ Medical science

Please talk some sense mto

I am writing to ask you on be-

you would like to jom. simply

STEP 1- Sit for 12 houFS in a

STEP 2: Have a tattoo done 
on your bum which reads 
•Mary Whitehause was ere" 
STEP 3: Sil through an entire

THE OFFICIAL 
PLAYER'S GUIDE TO 

SIMULCRA 



Once again courtesy of those cool coding 
dudes at Graftgotd. here's a mega-guide to 
their latest 3D wonder, Simulcra - just the 
ticket for frustrated Snv (Surface Recon- 
naissance Vehicle) pilots... 



Thart js a generaf priorities list thai you should adhere 
to whilst playing each level of the game - and this is 
HT 

1. Locate and destroy the next power generator. 

2. 9ulld up the SRV^s capabilities. 
3> SeeK extra lives. 

4. Kill the enemy. 

5. Get a pod to update your restart position. 

6. Survive {a bit obvious really). 

STARTING UP 

The best way to establish your SRV Is to generally 
wipe out the enemy in the starting area and use the 
resulting pods lo power-up your SRV. Pick up a TAD 
(Target And Display) as this highlighls what pods 
contain and helps you to decide whether it's worth 
going tor pods that are in tricky positions- Try to pick 
up a radar pod so you Inslanliy have a map of the 
matrl3( at the foot of the screen. 

POWER-GENERATING 
PRANKS 

Use the map lo locale energy barriers that aren't 
connected to the edge barrier ^ follow these and you'll 
invariably end up facing a power generator. Following 
degenerating barriers is a^so another quick way of 
finding another generator without looking al the map. 
When you reach a generator try to pick up a pod so 
that If you die you are instantly put back near the 
generator, 

SURVIVAL 

As you play it's best to leave the shield power-ups 
behind and then return lo them once your SRV is 
weit«and4ryly shot up. As your SRV ts significantly 
faster than most of the opposing meanieSp retreating 
to pods you've left behind is often the best tactic. 
However, if you haven't left any pods behind on your 
travels, shoot innocuous meanies and hope you gel a 
ehietd pod!

DOGFIGHTING 



If you are attacked by airborne craft there are few 
useful tactics. If their turning circle is better than 

yours then It's advisable to land beceuse then out-ma* 
neuvering your opponent is easier. II an enemy la 
approaching you from behind try decei era ting and 
turning, this should cause the ship to move right into 
your sights! Try leading attackers into minefields or 
towers - they aren't equipped to avoid such ground* 
based hazards! 



DANGEROUS 
OPPONENTS 



Parked flying craft can be dangerous if you fet I hem 
1ake~off. so the best lactic is to simply tjlast them 
before they have the opporlunily to leave the grounds 
Motherships will undoubtedly make a special guest 
appearance sooner or later. These heavily armoured 
meanies follow you around generating other aliens 
and take many hits to destroy. The best tactic, if 
you ve got plenty of shields. Is to ram the ship head 
onl 

Monoliths have the nasty tendency lo drain all your 
shield energy away very quickly; The best tactic is to 
approach this beastle pretty slowly and just as it 
enters laser range, blast away. Be sure lo keep your 
distance though. 

Homing meantes are another problem. The cunning 
SRV pilot retreats at speed, firing at it. It should now 
pose no threat and you should be able to outrun it, if 
not outgun It. 

Some drolds can tm rather nasty and fire frlsbee*rike 
homing missiles at you. It » best to go straight in and 
shoot the droid rather than the homing missileip

RACER 



Flippin' heck! Ivan "Ironman" Stewarts 
Super Ofl-Road Racer (to give It rts fuir name) 
scooped a handful of rave reviews a couple 
of months ago, and now, C-f VG are here with 
the exclusive and dare we say, definitive 
guide to this tabby game - straight from the 
programmers themselves (cor!). 



In Ihi sp«tdshop» ficcelerillon and top speed are 
moil Important, but you don'iget full effect from tht at 
yfilitt you have d«c«nl tyres. 

Staying on the track with all four wheels Is Important, 
ao tome ifiocki will come In handy after a few races. 
They http to decreaie the effect ofthebumpsonthe

Somitimei it't better to take the long route around a 
bump, fuel to keep speed up, especlaHy if you have

Uaa nitroa wisely. The re 'a not much point firing a nitro 
at a eorntr and banging straight Into the wait. They are 
moat effecMve when used on a fairly Eong straight. 

Don't use nitros with other trucks directly in front of 
you. they will get more benefit from the knock on effect 
than you will get from the nltro. 

it*a better to stay behind cars than trying to force your 
way past them at tricky points of a track, you will 
normally end up worse off. 

Remember, Ironman Is the fastest and craftiest com- 
puter truck, so he's the one to concentrate on, al« 
though to survive a race you must beat ALL of tht 
computer-control ltd trucks. 

Tht computer eontrolltd trucks, Ironmun especially, 
get upset If you beat them by too much In a race and 
|az£ up Iheir trucks accordingly for the neMl race - so 
try not to beat them by too large a margin. 



If you tm, try to cut the corners around the track - the If a best to stay behind cars than trying to force your

SUPER MONACO GP 

us GOLD 

11 slr«afaed through mcwAm% flcrots the glob^ wowing 
aiiy gam^sttr who dered play il. The latest in Stgi's 
long lint of mega 3D driving gaffws took Iha player lo 

the street circuit of Monaco - the scene of I he greatest 
video formyia one race of all time! US Gold have en* 
Ifsted Probe software (Ihe ^uys t>ehlnd the acclaimed 
Tufho OutRyn and SCi conversions) lo come up with 
the goods, and by the looks of It, Ihey ve done woiv 
dera! 

The game puts you behind the whe#l of one of Ihrte 
formula one racers. The beginners' motor has an auto* 
matic gearbOM and la quite easy to handle - but isn't 
the fastest car on the circuit. The four-speed geart>ox 
machine Is the next progreasion and whilst faster, It's 
a bit more difficult to control The seven-speed gear- 
box is only recommended to arcade f4lgel Man eel Es 
who can take every one of Monaco's twists and turns 
with ease. 

Then It's on to the qualifying race« where you race 
across a section ol the Monaco track aiming to gat as 
high a position as possible on the starling grid. During 
the actual three lap race, there are no Itme llmils - you 
Just need to stay among the from runners In order to 
stay In the race, it you do well then it a oil to a second 
race, where rain beats down on the Monaco circuit 
making the car even more ditficuit lo conlioL 
The Megadrive version went down well with Ihe CWC 
crew because of the extra circuits they crammed into 
the cart, along with a whole season's worth of racing. 
You couid even drive a better car by challenging a su^ 
perior leam*s driver ar>d bealing him during the sea* 
son. US Gold even have plans to add this Into their 
home conversipnsl 

We've had a butcher's at Amiga. ST, C64 and Amatrad 
versions of the game and to say that we were im« 
pressed is something of an understatement! The 16- 
bit versions look amazing with a speedy car and fast, 
smooth graphics. All of the brilUanl piesentation 
screens of the coin-op have been Included, and 
Probt's artists have actually Improved on themf S 
stars aren't being left out either. The C64 version we 
had a look at was simply amazing with a very nippy 
turn of speed and the Amslrad version also holds a \n\ 
of promise. Check out the multi-formal preview shots 
dotted around Ihe page 

We're going to be reviewing the ttntshed game eiclu* 
slvely in our March issue, so stay with C^ VG for the 
first word on the hottest gamesi

SEGA 

Yet another shool 'em up is about to eKplode onto Ihe 
Migadnve, but this one's a little bit on the tasty side! 
As is ihe norm with these, the scenario s a bit naft - 
suffice to say. you are a transforming robot, with 
inmtfidoys Mrepower, and your task is to fly through 
myTtad atien-inrested levels, and btow the Nttle suc- 
kers to oblivion! 

Soine of the weapons are quite stunning - especially 
th« twin lightning cannons on full power, which is al- 
most equivalent to invincibility! Pheweet Could this 
potaibly be the best blaster on Ihe Megadrive lo date? 
Chick out Ihe next issue of C*VG. when we'll be bring- 
fgyeu the fufl exclusive review on this Itllte baby • 
Inn you'U find out il the gameplay matches the rather 
|ji€y visuals!

lithal the maze is full of obstacles including ice, 
locked doors and water. Luckily Ihere s plenty of keys
